Russell F. Jorgensen, 46, will become President of 
Pacifica Foundation on October 1 of this year. He will 
leave the American Friends Service Committee to 
which he has given many years of distinguished service. 
Trevor Thomas, who has been both Foundation Presi- 
dent and KPFA Manager since 1961, and who had, 
upon assumption of this heavy double burden, requested 
early relief from one or the other, will continue as 
station manager of KPFA. He joins me in enthusiasti- 
cally welcoming Russell Jorgensen to this phyically and 
mentally demanding, but rewarding field of public 
activity. 

I have no doubt that many listening participants of 
KPFA, KPFK. and WBAI will share with the Board of 
Directors, the station staffs, and advisors, a feeling of 
gratitude to Trevor Thomas for his vision, his creative 
understanding and his dependability and honesty as 
exemplified during the recent U.S. Senate Subcommit- 
tee hearings. We are fortunate indeed to have him con- 
tinue as KPFA Manager. 

Mr. Jorgensen has served continuously on the Pacifica 
Board of Directors since 1955, and brings to his new 
position much experience in administration, fund-rais- 
ing and public relations. As associate executive secre- 
tary for the AFSC he has worked in housing, race 
relations, farm labor, penal reform and several inter- 
national programs. In 1949 in Japan he helped estabUsh 
the first International Student Seminar and two semi- 
nars for repatriating Japanese. With his wife, he has 
directed a variety of projects in Israel, Mexico and the 
U.S. He is one of the founders of the Friends Commit- 
tee on Legislation for Northern California and from 
1959-62 he was clerk of the Berkeley Friends Meeting. 
In 1961 he and his wife were among the 400 jailed as 
'freedom riders' in Jackson, Mississippi. 

It has been my privilege for approximately a decade 
to be associated with Pacifica. I came to know Lewis 
Hill intimately and his magnificent vision of commu- 
nication on lofty levels of intellectual search and of 
aesthetic perception, communication, and sensitivity. I 
have seen the fruits of his vision mature under Harold 
Winkler, Trevor Thomas and so many other colleagues 
sharing in what, on the death of Lewis Hill, I ventured 
to call 'this audacious and challenging adventure of 
the mind and heart.' Russell Jorgensen, whose work on 
the Board of Directors has shown understanding and 
dedicated to the purposes and ideals of Pacifica, will 
be supported by the capable staffs of the three stations, 
by a strong Board and by our listeners. The next years, 
I am sure, will be nobly productive ones for Pacifica. 
We shall find this 'adventure of the mind and heart' 
increasingly audacious and ever more challenging. 
R. Gordon Agnew, D.D.S., Ph.D. 
Chairman, Pacifica Board of Directors

6:15 TOSCANINI IN PHILADELPHIA The first of 
Toscanini's recordings with the Philadelphia 
Orchestra, Schubert's Ninth Symphony was re- 
corded on November 16, 1941. The technical 
defects which have until now kept these discs 
in Victor's vaults are still slightly evident, but the 
sound is remarkably good, thanks to the Academy 
of Music where the recording was mode. And if 
the aura of legend which surrounds the Phila- 
delphia series is not quite substantiated in reality, 
the performance is still fine. Oct. 11

Piano Variations'. This highly percussive and 
dissonant work was orchestrated by the composer

more colorful than the keyboard version, but

than dynamic elements implied in the 1930 piece.
